There are too many words already flowing in the universe. That is why I so appreciate short sentences and short paragraphs.
Mała Wandzia is out growing most of her clothes. Ideally at this point I would be sewing and knitting her outfits so we do not have to buy anything. But I have no time to do this. I cannot devote my few precious moments at night to baby clothes making because I have other responsibilities, for example jobs.
Since I do not expect any more hand-me-downs I have to find a way to buy some stuff for her without ruining our budget. There are limited options since we do not have a car.
It looking for baby clothes in Montreal and being on a budget is like balancing between a budget and a desire to have a baby dressed in cutest and safest way.
Expensive clothes from St. Catherine street.
+ very accessible
– way too expensive
Secondhand stores from around Montreal
+ environmentally friendly
– no easy access
– dogging though things that are not that nice and that may have bedbugs..
+ also environmentally friendly
– as far as I know a baby clothing swap in Montreal happens only once a year (oh. how I wish it was once a month!) Here is some info about Montreal clothing swaps
+ very nice, eco-friendly and safe stuff
– way too expensive
(while I am happy to spend lost of money on gear like lamb skins and wraps, I do not feel like spending too much on things that will be used only for a short period of time)
Well that is all I can think about right now. There is also Craigslist but I have a strong feeling that people selling stuff there are either greedy or too lazy to make a garage sale (oh. how I love garage sales!)
I am too busy and tired to do anything. That is why I am starting to write this blog. This will be a place that connects all the scattered parts of my life. A place where I share things I make and things I love. Where I write about little things that move my heart and events that I do not want to forget. I could have done it on 750words but I want to save pictures and projects that cannot be saved there.
My name is Edyta. This is what I do most of the time:
I do other things too.
